BritMums leads a photo sharing community on Instagram called – #SnapHappyBritMums! We’d love you to join in with us!

Yesterday we all enjoyed HALLOWEEN! The day that the veil is thinnest between the spiritual world and the human world. Halloween was originally a festival celebrating the dead and the world of the supernatural. It is a time to remember and honor our loved ones who have crossed over. The traditions and folklore of Halloween are a hybrid of Pagan, Celtic, Catholic and ancient Roman traditions. We dress up as spirits historically, because people believed impersonating the spirits would offer protection from them.

This month our SnapHappyBritMums community focuses on Halloween. Here are some of your scary shares below!

We visited the beautiful @thorp.perrow.arboretum yesterday 🕷👻🎃lots of fun following the Halloween trail! It’s not the cheapest option around with a family ticket costing £28.40 and the trail an additional £2 per pack, but you could walk around without a pack too. They have obviously invested well over the years on the decorations, the girls loved them and then the beautiful colours within the grounds make for a stunning setting especially with the blue skies yesterday. There is also a bird of prey centre,mammals such as Meerkats and also a little walk through Wallaby Wood to enjoy. Not forgetting the huge treehouse play park area for the kids to explore. It was busy as you would expect with most of the children on half term in the area. Check out my YouTube Channel for a video of the visit #halloween #northyorkshire #visitnorthyorkshire #northeast #halloweentrail #spooky #scary #skeleton #pblogger #mummyblogger #thorpperrow #thorpperrowarboretum #gardens #autumn #gardens #exploreoutdoors #halftermfun #northeastfamilyfun #ourwhimsicaldays #magicofchildhood #childhoodunplugged #snaphappybritmums
